While many of us understand complex theories of criticism or finance, we cannot explain why the lights go on when we flick a switch or how a radio works.

Overview

While many of us understand complex theories of criticism or finance, we cannot explain why the lights go on when we flick a switch or how a radio works. In this reader-friendly, unabridged edition of three of his best-selling books, renowned science writer Isaac Asimov demystifies physics, teaching the fundamentals in a manner easily understood by lay people.

Including the complete text of Motion, Sound and Heat, Light, Magnetism and Electricity, and The Electron, Proton and Neutron, this volume will guide you through the evolution of physics from its early Greek beginnings up to the modern theories of the creation of time, space and matter.

Each volume relates the tale of the human quest through the ages for answers to the fundamental questions of how the universe works. Told in its historical context, this quest for knowledge is a story of high drama and uncommon valor, when men put their very lives on the line for the sake of scientific truth. 768pp. Originally published in 3 volumes.

I've read parts of this book and thought it was very enjoyable. The part about E=mc^2 was easy to follow and it seemed to me anyone with an understanding of basic algebra would understand the logic. Asimov was the man!

This book is a classic science book from a classic science writer. Asmiov presents the basics of Physics that will give you the foundation you need to know about the physical world you live in. Many think Physics and complicated go hand in hand, but this book makes Physics easy to understand. Take it from me, a 16 year old Highschool Student. Even I understood it. If you do not know Physics, you are cheating yourself. Read this one!

This is a very intersting book. It tells us about physics more than any of the other books of the same kind. You don't need to read any other book before reading this. Even a 11 year old kid would read and understand it
